Recap: Jamie Foy Wins The Boardr Am at Tampa Bay

Posted by Rob Meronek on Tuesday, March 3, 2015

Marcos Montoya had the Qualifiers and Semi-Finals on lock, but when the format switched to Runs for the Finals, it was Jamie Foy who ended up putting the best line of tricks together. Jamie will join Jon Cos and Jagger Eaton at The Boardr Am Series Finals at X Games in Austin. Congrats Baby Body! Thanks to everyone who was here today.

Jamie Foy skated practice for a bit the day before. Yes, sometimes he falls off his skateboard, just not all that much in the Finals, which is how he won this stop.
